In a working environment where superior office bearers show their negative behaviors and attitudes toward their subordinates, employee performance decreases. In this study, we examined sub factors of Abusive Supervision, which are Leadership Justice, Supervisory Trust and Self Efficacy. And try to find out the impacts of these sub variables on employee performance. This research is based on quantitative data. An online self-administered questionnaire which consists of questions with five points Likert scales, was distributed among employees of different private sector companies functioning in Karachi, Pakistan. The data was collected and fed into SPSS Software. Through using multiple regression analysis we found that all three sub variables have significant positive impact on performance of employees. Among them, Leadership Justice was found to be the most significant sub variable that impacts on employee performance in this research. Equality in work schedule, workload as well as in pay and incentives are more favored by the respondents.
